“I learned to sew on a sewing machine when I was younger. We purchased patterns, cut out the fabrics, and sewed it all up… so I have had some rudimentary experience with sewing, but would still consider myself a beginner. That said, as a knitter who has gained an understanding of fit and ease, etc., I’ve got an interest in sewing garments again, but am a little overwhelmed about where to start and how FAR to jump into sewing and drafting patterns. I’m working on padding out my dress form to be more of a real “double”-- but at what stage should I bother trying to make a sloper? A Moulage? Where would you recommend getting started. I checked at our local CC but it’s not offering classes of that nature; and even with Craftsy, I’ve been overwhelmed by the choices that don’t seem curated to guide me into levels of “making”. How does someone “level up” with sewing?”Vogue 1003, Vogue 1004 LINK
